Sand 'N Surf: Cookie Sandcastle (Tutorial)

To make a cookie sandcastle you will need:

 The cookie shapes and sizes are completely up to you.
I "googled" sandcastles and decided on a two tower castle
with a large rectangle base and then squares, circles, and triangles stacked on top. 
(Note, I put holes in all the smaller cookies thinking I would put my toothpick flags into the holes, 
but in the end,  I didn't use the they are not necessary.)

I like to line up the cookies in the order I am going to stack them together.

Use Sand-Colored 10-Second Glaze to glue the pieces together.

Allow the cookie sandcastle to dry for an hour or two before
covering the entire castle in Sand-Colored 10-Second Glaze.

Place the still-wet castle (parchment paper and all) into a deep
container that will contain all the Demerara Sugar you will pour over it.

I made some tiny flags with toothpicks, colored paper, and 
scrap booking double-sided glue tabs.

 I attached to the back of the towers and used 
extra glaze to glue them securely.

I love reading your blog! But... I very much dislike the new layout. I use to check your blog daily. Now I only check it about once a month because it takes so long for your site to load! And it crashed my computer a few weeks back. Not sure if I will continue coming back, too slow and too risky.

 So sorry that is giving you problems. It would never be my intent to make it difficult for people to visit my blog. I'm glad you've enjoyed reading it when you've come online.

First of all, I just want to say that I have no trouble loading your site Pam, it comes up quick and no issues.  Now, these sandcastle cookies.  Fabulous!  Just Fabulous :)

 Thanks Paula. I was a bit worried that maybe there was something up with the site. But really.....there's not anything I can do about it. It's blogger......and I have a custom built design, but I don't think it is overbearing or anything. So your reassurance is just what I needed. I had not heard any complaints before this, so I was pretty sure that in general, my blog is fine.

And thanks so much for always encouraging me about my cookies. You're a sweetheart! ♥

No problems with the blog on my end and I look at it from a lot of different devices.  Maybe you are adding more pics than you used to and it is slowing the load down for some.  I love the pics and I have to say I had no idea that those sand castles were cookies.  I thought they were props of some sort!  Again thank you for sharing with all of us.

Love all of the beach cookies!  I've been pretty obsessed with my mini crab cutter lately.  I love how you did the eyes.  So cute!

I never have problems with your blog loading either.

All the best for your big trip!
